Lmao Ya. I mean Ya sure the wind sucks and all but was that an appropriate reaction? Absolutely not. A very miserable Guy at work gave me s*** the other day for parking in "his spot" which isn't actually anyone's spot, I think maybe he just called lifetime dibs or something lol, he was honestly infuriated. I thought it was funny, he had to park 2 spaces over, oh no...


Well it has been labelled the "generation of entitlement" lol

The culture has already changed a great deal and will no doubt have to be the main catalyst for the removal of fighting.


Those scenarios will always be more frequent in hockey than other sports because of the speed, physicality and ability to inflict large amounts of damage at any time.


The pitcher in baseball throwing his ball at players is not even a close comparison.

We already have a model for what intense, physical, fast, aggressive, win at all costs hockey looks like.  It's called the playoffs.  And they rarely fight.


Absolutely and it's the best hockey there is.


Like I said before.  I'm just curious how certain situations would play out.

Its definitely going that way and I don't want to make it seem like I'm "pro-fighting".  I'm definitely "anti-enforcer".


I'm just curious how certain scenarios would play out...


Your team is fighting for a playoff spot and a guy on the other team (also playing for playoff spot) viciously runs your star player from behind and knocks him out cold.


I don't see the victimized team doing nothing.  So they punch him in the head with the gloves on? Start swinging sticks?


There is no comparable major sport where you can inflict a large amount of damage with a weapon at any time against an unsuspecting player.


Again I'm not pro-anything. I just don't think it's that simple of an issue.

I actually believe an argument can be made that fighting may in some cases improve another area of the game, like reduce cheap shots. I don't know for certain if that's true, but the players themselves have talked about. My issue is that I think it's time we found another solution to these problems that's not so stupid as fighting.


What would you suggest?  Larger fines? Longer suspensions?

Kind of getting off topic... Yay Smith and Ericcson
